Fitbit has been known for its fitness trackers for quite a while now. The brand launched various wristbands and each tracker depends on your needs. For a few months now, I’ve been using the Fitbit Alta HR. Is this for you? Should this be your fitness companion? Here is my Fitbit Alta HR review.


Hands down when it comes to the design of the Fitbit Alta HR. It is the slimmest tracker they have that can detect heart rate. Plus, the strap is interchangeable to easily match your outfit. There is even a stainless steel bracelet, which can be bought separately.


With just a tap on the OLED screen, you can change the view from steps, to time, to distance, to calorie burn.


It also has call, text and calendar alert feature, which is very useful for me since I do not usually hear my phone when I’m outside the house. It also reminds me to move if I’ve been sitting in front of my laptop for too long. When it comes to battery life, it can last for almost a week without charging.

My most favorite feature of the Fitbit Alta HR is the Auto Sleep Tracking & Sleep Stages. Do I get deep sleeps? Do I enter the REM state? My sleeping habits are pretty bad and this tracker somehow helps me understand my sleep quality. The tracker is sync in the mobile app, where you can see all the details of your sleep.


It has Auto Exercise Recognition too and automatically logs this in to your Fitbit app. Not all are detectable though since I have to manually input my lifting exercise in the app.


What is good about tracking your exercise is that you can make the most out of each workout. Double your effort if you see you haven’t reached your target heart rate or slow down if you are pushing too hard.


I would recommend the Fitbit Alta HR to those who want to start being fit and healthy and to those who are looking for a stylish fitness tracker that can be worn on any occasion. If you are fitness enthusiast who trains regularly, Fitbit Alta HR might fall a little short on its features. Personally, I would go for the Fitbit Blaze or Ionic since I find logging in my workouts manually too tedious. I would appreciate the On-Screen Workout or the music player features of the Blaze or Ionic. If you don’t mind logging in to the mobile app to manually enter your undetected workouts, then Fitbit Alta HR is good enough. It is not a very basic fitness tracker anyway. It can detect sleep quality, heart rate, distance and calories burned, which are all important to help you reach your health goals.


Fitbit Alta HR SRP is PHP 8,490.
